Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

52 in RCA widescreen HDTV Monitor

It takes a long time to turn on and while its warming up it makes a high pitched squeeling noise. After you wait awhile you can turn the channel and the picture pops up, but its got a yellowish tint to it. During movies if something blows up, or theres a lot going on, the screen will go black and you have to turn the channel to get it back on. Its only about 4 years old and I dont want to go buy a new TV if its something in-expensive to fix. Any help would be most appreciated! Thanks.

    I can push the TV on switch, the TV will not come on it blinks three times. If I wait 1 to 2 minutes, it will do the same thing. Sometimes after following through for about 4 to 5 times it will finally come on. The last few times I tried to turn it on it has not worked.

High pitched squealing noise >> im thinking is the color wheel which will also give you the yellow color, don't know if that would also cause your screen to blank.

High Pitched Squeel and turns on and off 3 times and stays off


This is most likely the death song of the main power supply. They normally operate at frequencies well above the audible range but certain components in the process of failing can cause their oscillating frequency to shift downward into normal hearing range.
The squealing you are hearing is from a dying 'switched mode' power supply and is normally caused by a ferrite-core transformer running at the wrong frequency and complaining about it.
The problem with them is almost certain to be caused by failed or failing electrolytic capacitors (cheap to replace) but continued attempted operation could cause further damage.

This problem is common enough that any half-way competent tech with a capacitance meter could weed out the culprits pretty quick.

I'm tempted to suggest you get these repaired if they were otherwise satisfactory since the our later sets too often seem to only survive the warranty.

If I was doing the repair, I would give you an estimate of under $75. US

TV making high pitch sound


Hi, There are usually 1 or 2 fans inside the TV's. Could be worn bearings, or fan blade interference. Sorry, without my electric ear working, I can only guess.

Will not turn on


Does the set make any sounds. DOes the front green led light or flash when you try to turn it on.. if not then it could be as simple as a fuse, if it does flash then it can be many problems
